CUNLIFFE, BARRY
Rome and the Barbarians

A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine price clipped dustjacket. Relating archaeological discovery to the Commentaries of Julius Caesar and Tacitus's Agricola, Professor Cunliffe traces the conquest of Gaul and of Scotland, then turns to Northern Europe : recent excavations in Romania have filled in many of the details of Trajan's conquest of Dacia, and in Hungary they have provided a vivid picture of what life was like on the edge of the Roman frontier. On the site of modern Budapest the remains of the Roman town and fortifications mark the base of a large garrison which faced across the Danube the ever-present attack from the germanic tribes.
